The figures above, along with encouragement from government programs such as CMS Stars, are driving the healthcare sector to study adherence patterns using predictive analytics to adjust care managers’ intervention strategies.
This model incorporated synthetic datasets on patient medication, encounters, and observation to analyze therapy progress and gaps on a year-to-year basis, covering a ten-year follow-up period. We used the frequency of drug dispensation per patient per year as a proxy for adherence and pegged the threshold cut-off at over the third quartile of the population. According to research, tracking medication fill rates may help measure non-adherence in some patients. In 1986, the Morisky Medication Adherence Scale, a simplified four-question survey demonstrated preliminary data on how the tool could assess non-adherence and overall treatment success in a smaller sample of hypertensive patients. The study found that patients who scored higher on the scale were significantly more likely to have their blood pressure under control after 42 months.
